We spent the last official day of regular activities having the best time playing everything and anything. The pool and lake were full of happy campers. The fields had tons of games going on and the biddy courts had kids playing on them all day long. It was like we all knew that this is it. Trying to get every last game in before we load the buses on Saturday.
It was time for two last Wayne County Championship games and it was a Chenny sweep. Our Freshman/Junior girls played their heart out today on the basketball court as they defeated Westmont with a 24-20 win to clinch the Championship. You could hear the cheers with excitement as the whistle blew and the game ended. These adorable talented kids ran around jumping up and down knowing they had just won their very first Championship. All they wanted to do was jump in the lake, uniforms on and all and that is exactly what they did. Together they held hands and jumped in with the biggest smiles on their faces; a moment that these kids will never forget.
A huge congratulations to our Collegiate Boys Softball team for defeating Equinunk with a 8-7 win to be named Wayne County Champions. They worked hard, had a common goal and brought home the championship. They were so excited, proud and most importantly, they had a great time.
The night was all about Late Night with Leahy and the buzz was in the air. It is an amazing culmination of great videos and presentations delivered by our Associate Director extraordinaire, Brian Leahy. It was hilarious and referenced everything funny about camp this summer. Every camper and staff member laughed till it hurt. It was like watching a real late night show with comedy sketches, give away prizes, Carpool Karaoke and a camp favorite How Animals Eat Part II. This evening’s activity is a camp favorite and even our counselors that were off duty, stayed to watch because it’s just that entertaining. Campers absolutely went crazy for the hilarity of what they witnessed. It was a perfect way to end a perfect day.
Everyone is looking forward to banquet tomorrow. It is the best celebration and we do it in style. We dine on amazing cuisine as we are all dressed up in our best duds. Then it’s back to the bunk to get on comfortable clothes and shoes for one amazing night of dancing and celebrating. Best night of CAW is just around the corner. It’s one big party and everyone looks forward to this night all summer long. We just can’t believe it’s actually here. Feels like we just rolled into camp and started this journey but 48 days have passed and we are looking at the end of an experience that has changed who we are. Summer 2016 will forever be etched in our minds as the summer that made us better versions of ourselves. Here’s to the last 2 days
